2017 was a good year for the statutory pension insurance in Germany. Record employment rates and higher wages allowed contribution income to increase for the tenth year in a row.

Titelbild des Jahresberichts 2017 Given this positive economic development, pensions were raise in mid-2017 by 1.9 percent in Western Germany and by 3.59 percent in Eastern Germany. The contribution rate was lowered by 0.1 percentage points to 18.6 percent in early 2018.

Furthermore, important reforms were introduced in 2017, such as the pension alignment between Eastern Germany Western Germany and improved invalidity benefits. Additional measures have been planned by the coalition, such as stipulating thresholds for pension levels and contribution rates, better protection of the self-employed or an additional expansion of maternal benefits which, from a statutory pension insurance perspective, should be financed from tax revenues. The institutions of the German Statutory Pension Insurance (in the following referred to as German Pension Insurance) will continue to provide constructive support during this process.
